    I actually think that all the pieces I have are exceedingly well-made, sneakers maybe halfway included. I think my drkshdw combo pants might be fake, so I'm not sure if I should include those. They've ripped a little bit, though.

    edit - I meant mainline stuff, so maybe that wasn't the point.

    I have a bunch of RO but can't comment on how it holds up; I've never worn any of it lol to be fair though, it feels pretty well constructed (dont have any jeans though).

    generally speaking, you don't see non-shady people wearing these as their out-in-public shirt. on another note, i've never really seen the benefit to wearing a sleeveless undershirt. i wear undershirts to provide a buffer between my deodorant and my shirts. is it just to keep the nips from showing through thinner shirts???

    I have been wearing them for many years and prefer the fit and comfort over a crew or v-neck. They absorb the perspiration from my chest and back and provide the nipple coverage that you mention. Since I use the crystal alum deodorant, I don't worry about the discoloration to my dress shirt. Also, I wear Hanes A-shirts and the armholes are not too deep cut so they do provide some sweat absorption underneath the arms. At least for me, they provide the fit, comfort and look that I prefer and, at the end of the day, it comes down to personal preference.

    Just curious, can you state that the crystal deodorant really works, and works all day? I've thought about it a million times, but have never pulled the trigger.

    I've never used crystal deodorant, but I just started using this:

    I use the unscented variety, and it's holding up pretty well.

    Any of you folk have experience with Mr. Hare shoes/boots? I have been eying them up lately, but don't know much about them quality/fit-wise. Would love to hear some feedback if you have any.

    from what i have handled at gpope and what i have (king tubbys) - quality is really good, very solid construction. mine fit maybe 1/2 a size large. i think most of them have a pretty serious taper. srsly worth it at lncc prices right now. i think tts and sizing up one (eu size) (model depending re pointyness) would work eaither which way.

    I agree with BrizaBirch; everything from Mr. Hare that I've handled has been really great. I had a pair that had amazing quality, and looked beautiful as well. If they're your style, I'd definitely recommend getting some. Salmon skin Zukie's would be pretty awesome, I think. EDIT: I've been looking like crazy for white shirts that are slightly longer, with slightly longer sleeves, that are still relatively slim (i.e. ones that fit me) and it is absolutely impossible. I'm guessing I may need to get some MTM or something. [​IMG]

    BOAT SHOES ARE BACK MUTHAFUCKAZ!!!

    Never thought I'd live to see the SF day that we'd again have more than one thread on the main page.

    Next stop: Desert boots.


    Just bought a pair of clarks a few weeks ago for the first time. ARW and kelvin can attest for it. Kickin' it old school

    Probably the nicest varsity I've ever seen.

    Thanks for the info guys, much appreciated. They look really solid, so I guess the look and how they handle meet up, which is great. I was looking at the King Tubby's and the Spectator Boots in particular, boots more so than the Tubby's. Any sizing referenced from you guys? I am a 41 in CP (sneakers and shoes), 7 UK in Grenson, 7.5 UK 5 fitting Tricker's, 8D Alden Barry, 8.5 Alden Trubalance. I was thinking a 7UK in Mr. Hare to be safe since they do like they taper like crazy like you mention Briza.
